For questions about how the Covid-19 pandemic is affecting sports.
The Covid-19 pandemic resulted in cancellation of majority of organized sports events worldwide in 2020. Many sports leagues/events were shutdown and eventually forced to cancel the rest of their seasons to avoid spread of the disease. Many none league sports event were too cancelled or postponed, most notably the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics which has been postponed to summer of 2021.
Some leagues/organizing bodies which produce more revenue have been able to resume (or are in talks of resumption as of June 2020). These events have been mostly happening with no to little fans in attendance. As a result of months long hiatus, some leagues/sports are resumed under different format and regulation such as the modification of playoff formats in major North American Sports leagues, and FIFA allowing for more substitutions in soccer games.
